status with not just fish midis watering for their own status all over india will will focus on the issue of kashmir you know we've also seen social media really playing a big role in campaigning tell us more about that. well so much social media is definitely essential because just coming back to the numbers that is the selection is about numbers you know just the just by the number of smartphone users have actually tripled since the last general election for fifty million users of smartphones in the country right now smartphone penetration has skyrocketed india has the largest markets off what's often facebook and even the election commission a stick in north and for the first time the election commission of india which is basically the authority that monitors the election is watching candidates online behavior so candidates have to toe the line the way they have to do in japanese and offline advertising for the first time ever in india as electoral history we actually went down to the southern state of karnataka to meet with one such young
candidate who heavily uses social media to reach out to waters to find out how he's appealing to the masses while also ensuring that he told the line that the election commission is drawing. probably going to vote party or this could be just recent. for that student of the south indian city of bengal to a lawyer and a member of parliament joining us a lot of order for the recall at twenty eight he is the youngest candidates from the ruling b.g.p. to contest these elections. as temperatures soared above to five degrees on the soft be just me goes out of his to read to greet and knowledge every constituent he sees each not in read is an appeal for words. but despite the palpable excitement of supporters and party locals the politician is at best reaching a few hundred overtrain sweltering odds. on to be just we can reach over one hundred thousand followers in
a flash most of our young people to be gone before ones. are telephoned to the army by phone to be is a point of. information as well as entertainment so. politically the greatest political. that we have to be is the smartphone in our hands. since the last national board smartphone usage in india has to pollute to a staggering four fifteen million. election authorities trying to ensure free and fair elections have taken no. one's going to catch your eye is the colorful talk behind me which belongs to the beach every candidate who is holding an election rally but no lipstick with a friend is this very hard to my right which belongs to the election commission of and their election commission close even one of those everything a candidate does be it on that is already advertising but for the first time ever in getting a free election commission of india is also watching what is going to be done
online on social media platforms like twitter and facebook. policing the world wide web there is no easy down. form such as facebook which is all for a high degree of customization to the advertisers which are good political parties the information offered chooses. so what you have is the perfect. political message which makes it incredibly powerful. but social media can also be problematic dangerous when he has been criticised for tweets opposing reservations for women and supporting the b j p's hindu nationalist agenda he has even want to gag order on the media to prevent reporting on what he called stephanie tree allegations. but now a group of friends and supporters is harder to work to boost his online image. the content just kept young and peppy to resonate with the just response on
a political cartoons like these in addition help directly establish prime minister narendra modi's support for the young candidate. social media to you must also ensure ethical content that all those official guidelines. social media is there to believe ford works with is really really more in control of what happens online and since it was all user base or word order or goes online from these these are going . on going to good. supporters meanwhile exuberance to be what it about privacy and be camille's but it is what happens online that may well decide this election. nimish i just while reporting for us there now to some other stories making headlines around the world north korea has demanded washington remove secretary of state mike compare from any future nuclear talks a foreign ministry spokesman described pompei zero as in mature and reckless
